    He's not any of the things Steve calls him, but he likes the way it sounds and how sure Steve is when he tells Bucky that he is those things.

    Summary

    "If he didn't think about anything but the motion of walking — muscles contracting while their counterparts stretched, tendons pulling on his bones, knees bending and unbending — if Bucky thought of nothing else, he would be OK."

    After Stark and the missile silo, but before Wakanda.

    Summary

    This felt so wrong to talk about, it wasn’t Sam’s story to tell. It gummed up his brain, just thinking about it sent him in a tailspin. He tried not to.

    But there was a hole in Sarah’s floor the size of a metal fist, and a man laid out on her bed, dead to the world. And Sam was tired of carrying so much on his own. So he told her, and she listened unmoving until he got to the end.

    Summary

    mortality
    /mɔːˈtalɪti/

    Noun. The state of being subject to death. From the Proto-Indo-European root mer, meaning: to die. Forms all or part of mortar; murder; nightmare; post-mortem; remorse.

    Maybe this is the entry wound through which grief makes itself known in him, healing before it can exit his body. Trapped in the throat of the universe, neither coughed up or choked down, lingering between life and death as an unending sob.

    There’s a sobbed moan trying to make its way out of him right now, marked by a deep pushing in, as if Nicky is attempting to climb inside his body and never go. The sun is unhinging its jaw over the day, teeth biting into the edges of the afternoon, a deep orange glow spilling from its mouth. There’s singing light in Joe’s bones and Nicky in his flesh.
